    How do i turn off my sat nav??????

    Yeah well ive just fitted my Pioneer F900BT today in my car, works great an everything.
    But i have a problem which is i cant turn the ****ing thing off!

    Could anyone tell me how if they got any idea?
    No it hasnt got an on/off button, ive tried holding buttons down and going through the setttings, and it doesnt come with a manual.
    It just has a manual on a CD, which is not helping me.

    If anyone could answer me this silly question, that'd be great.
    Cheers

    Page wouldnt load but cheers anyway
    I just rung car audio security where i got the unit from, and found out that the Mk5 Astra's have a canbus or something where the Audio remains on after the ignition is on.
    Gonna open up the ignition barrel tomorrow and have a look, by the morning i may have a flat battery though lol

    The ignition feed is on the canbus wiring on that car. Take the red wire from the headunit to ignition live which is taped to the accesory socket wiring.

    Only take your ignition barrell apart if you want to break something!!

    I fit it at work with the help of a work mate. I work in a car repair garage.

    And cheers Autosparks but i took a look at it today and its not looking promising. I have used a ISO Quad-lock with aerial adaptor, but on the box there's no ignition live.
    Well there could be, but theres no live feed coming out of where i need it, and i don't want to play around because i dont want to risk blowing the unit.

    I could link it through to my ignition and have it attached, but i'll leave that to the professionals, i don't want to go touching wires I'm not familiar with.
    Plus it could be a pain trying to find the live feed in the ignition.

    Would it be safer just to buy a Can-bus adaptor? If so, ill go get one tomorrow.
    Sorry im bumping this again, but Im a bit lost.

    Getting a can bus steering wheel adaptor will always be best as it also gives you the other outputs that a sat nav uaually needs. I would recomend you get the connects2 version though CTSVX002 but I doubt you would get one of those before the bank holiday now as no where seems to keep them in stock

    The reason we recomend that over others is because it allows you to change the clock (and autolead versions are crap when it comes to pioneer in my experience)

    Yeah, in all fairness i should have just got that Connects2 item you told me to get in the first place, certainly would have saved me a lot of effort.
    Where can i get this from?
    I'll have to order one tomorrow, there's no rush in getting it anyways.
    Only problem is it rinsing my battery but i got a new battery this week so i should be ok.
    Cheers again for the help

    If you ask nicely caraudiosecurity might get that one in for you on special order, they did for me recently . Don't forget you need the pioneer patch lead as well

    As long as you switch the radio off manually then you shouldn;t have any battery problems
